    With Change Comes Conflict

    With Change Comes Conflict

    Today's guest experienced a very significant workplace conflict that began with scathing emails being circulated and her work being criticized- at a time when she was working on a large project. She was able to 'park' the conflict during her large project but the emotional shrapnel came to the surface when the dust settled. 

    Join us as we talk about the phenomenon of trust and how sometimes with change, comes conflict. 

    About this week's guest: 

    Today's guest's voice has been altered and her identity has been changed to protect her privacy. 

    Tune in as chat about:

    -The phenomenon of trust

    -The harm that 'cheerleading' in the workplace can cause

    -What happens when we try and ignore the impact of conflict

    In A Compromise, Everyone Loses

    This week on That C Word: In A Compromise, Everyone Loses.

    No matter how skilled you are, eventually everyone will experience conflict and nearly everyone dislikes it. Leaders are not exempt. The key to overcoming- and learning to prevent conflict- is being able to shift more frequently to a place of self awareness to keep you from getting stuck in a spiral of conflict. Lisa Chandler of Chandler Coaches joins me on this episode of That C Word and we discuss Chandler’s expertise as a leadership coach and how being conscious of your needs can help resolve workplace conflict.

    Tune in as we discuss:



    Understanding what’s motivating you and what your needs are



    When trust breaks down, negative assumptions are made



    5 Styles of conflict resolution styles



    About this week’s guest:

    Any leaders have told Lisa they are delighted to discover that they can access world-class leadership development in their backyard instead of travelling multiple times a year to larger centres.

    To bring the best leadership development to PEI and Atlantic Canada, Lisa invests in her own leadership growth regularly.

    She’s honed her craft through plenty of coaching certifications, previous roles in the public and private sectors, and more than a decade of coaching leaders across North America. For the past seven years, she has intentionally focused on leaders on PEI, home to her family and her heart.

    If you want a coach who will help you set a bunch of 10x goals and push you to achieve them, Lisa is not your coach.

In this episode of That C Word, I welcome long time friend and collaborator Roxanne Carter-Thompson, Executive Director of The Adventure Group to share her strategy for turning that superpower on when she needs it and how to dial it back for self-preservation. Join us as we chat about conflict, that ‘c’ word and how clashing personality types can lead to workplace conflict.***
